One adult plus two children (ages 8, 13). We were looking for a one-night stay with a pool. Boy did we get it! FABULOUS! Clean, organized, knowledgeable, professional, tidy, smart, thoughtful. The lobby has easy access to driveway for loading and unloading of luggage. Carts available right at the door for carrying said luggage. 2 staff, at all times at the counter, whom are very friendly, professional. Coffee, tea and cold lemon water (lemonaid?) available for free, comfy leather couches and chairs, and a print out (in a frame at the desk) detailing expected weather for the week--- all in the lobby! Then sign in simple and informational, directions to our hotel room clear and concise, keys worked in the door! Room spotlessly clean, aired, cooled (temp was 38C!) Fridge with small freezer, ice bucket (ice machine on same floor), 2 coffee pods and creamers, coffee mugs, wine glasses. Tonnes of various sized towels in good locations in the spotless washroom. Great water pressure, lighting, roomy washroom. there was a nice, personal sticky note on the washroom mirror from the cleaning crew! Beds were very comfy, (lots of) pillows were perfect! Room-darkening curtains clean, wrinkle-free. Beautifully decorated room, large flat screen tv, lots of plug ins for electronic devices (we each had two electronics-- total 6-- to plug in and no issues finding plugs) Hallways were wide, clean, quiet, very well maintained. The cleaning staff were fabulous! Professionally attired, cheerful, helpful. Oh! And the best part.... laundering is done IN HOUSE! I saw the room with the laundering machines and two women happily, yes happily, washing laundry, folding, etc.. :) VERY NICE to see! And, the entire hotel has been awarded certificates for cleanliness, and for going green! We had biodegradable, refillable supplies where appropriate. Very, very impressed with everything involving this hotel and experience. Also, very easy to find location from main highway, clean parking lot, some spots available undercover. We didn't hear any hallway noise even with a large convention filling the hotel! The games room is open 24 hrs and the pool is clean, cool and comfortable for both swimmers and on-lookers alike. The Continental Breakfast was waaaay better than expected! Fresh waffles and fruit, ice-cold milk, 3 kinds of juices, different types of breads for toasting, bagels, Danishes, omelets, breakfast wraps, coffee, tea, water, and all the sides you can think of. Again, clean, helpful friendly staff here too! The only bad things I can think of about our stay here, is: 1) the fact that IMPARK owns the parking around the hotel, and therefor guests must pay $5 for parking. 2) The hot tub water was an odd yellow color, and smelling strongly of chlorine. But that is it. 3) The view from the room window was of the roof of the next building.. but, in fairness, our visit was only for one night, we did not request a view, and we didn't care what the view was. Fabulous place to stay, we were pampered and enjoyed everything offered!
